Great movie submitted by jszchen on August 23, 2011, 11:50pm This is a great movie and love story about looking on the inside and not appearances

Good movie for kids and their parents. submitted by ilyjtwya on June 21, 2012, 6:32pm I happen to be a young enough parent that this is one of those movies I remember watching as a little girl. Besides being enjoyable, it offers some good teaching moments about the relationships and attitudes of the characters (Belle's love for reading being considered strange, Gaston's feeling of entitlement and attitudes toward Belle, etc.) And the songs are great to sing along to as a family :)

Great! submitted by alumeng.ajl on August 2, 2012, 4:50pm Beauty and the Beast is definitely one of my favorite Disney movies ever!

Favorite submitted by smariej on August 7, 2012, 5:16pm My all-time favorite movie from childhood. I still know all the words to the songs :)

Belle submitted by DL on August 28, 2012, 7:16pm It is great to have a princess who looks at a person for what they are inside and also likes to read.

Love This Movie submitted by jkerwin on June 20, 2013, 12:50pm I love Beauty and the Beast. It was one of my favorite movies as a child and I still love it as an adult. I love the songs. They are catchy and fun to sing to. Classic Disney movie.

A favorite submitted by crazypockets on July 13, 2013, 2:49pm This movie is a great one from my childhood. I liked that she wasn't a traditional princess. She's smart! She reads! And unlike some of the later Disney "enlightened princess" movies, they don't make it seem like it's that crazy of a thing.

Belle submitted by Yanzhang on August 3, 2013, 2:23pm My kids like belle because belle like read and very nice.

Family favorite submitted by andrea on August 30, 2013, 10:03pm This movie has all the classic Disney elements: a beautiful girl (with the nice twist that she cares more about her books that her looks!), a nasty villain, humorous sidekicks, some scary scenes, and great music. I like the message that personality is more important than what you can see when you look at someone.

Beauty and the Beast submitted by SBNB on June 29, 2014, 7:56pm This is possibly my favorite Disney movie from my childhood. The songs are fun, the story is classic, and it features a book-lover!

beauty and beast submitted by Diahann on August 1, 2015, 10:57pm beauty is truly in the eyes of the beholder.

Fabulous submitted by steveiew on August 19, 2015, 1:53pm Great movie with awesome music.

One of the best submitted by wendylv on August 21, 2015, 8:22pm Smart, independent, and courageous, Belle is a Disney princess you can be proud of. Some of the best Disney songs ever are in this movie.

Classic submitted by pooh on July 10, 2016, 2:33pm This is a Disney classic. Great music. Great animation. I watch it over and over again.

classic submitted by carolinepbg on August 18, 2016, 9:57pm great

One of my favorite Disney movies! submitted by Xris on June 25, 2018, 11:34pm Love that the main character is odd, but doesn't change herself when other people comment on it. Awesome music and great love story!

belle is the best! submitted by halliejewell on July 23, 2018, 10:53pm strong disney lead who is courageous, smart and kind.

All-Time Classic submitted by Meginator on July 25, 2018, 3:29pm This film is a timeless fairy tale classic, with unforgettable characters, a plot with plenty of twists and turns, and iconic musical numbers. Belle foreshadows an era of Disney princesses with increasing agency and the film itself engages several deeper themes, making it feel somewhat like a turning point for this genre of filmmaking. This one never gets old.

Great submitted by zmclaugh on August 1, 2018, 9:18am Lovely movie and good songs.

love it submitted by Kanchan21 on August 6, 2018, 1:58pm Love this movie and animation is good too. I enjyed this one more compared to new movie.

magical submitted by sandri on August 10, 2018, 3:54pm animation is good

stunning submitted by jw on August 16, 2018, 8:11pm Loved it. The animation is just too good!!

Beautiful yet somehow still controversial submitted by lstorc on August 28, 2018, 6:52pm Beautiful animation. Exquisite vocals. The underlined tail is a distressing as it's basically Stockholm Syndrome. The rest of it is truly amazing though.

Classic submitted by pepemama on June 23, 2019, 9:01am One of the best princess movies
